Pretty nice and just long enough for an evening's play. It is not very cthulhu-ish but more like a traditional horror mystery.

The story and motivation for the PC:s are a bit weak but a crafty GM will mend this. It's good to have read or watched something about the Titanic before playing this, as it will be easier to find the right atmosphere.

RMS Titanic: The Millionaire's Special

The premise seems quite simple - a wealthy man with aspirations and a keen interest in the overlap between science and parapsychology seeks to make a name for himself with the mummified remains of an Egyptian Princess. With his valuable possession in tow, he heads for home in the US - aboard the RMS Titanic. What could go wrong when you're carrying the corpse of the unlucky princess on the maiden voyage of an unsinkable ship?

A short, punchy premise and adventure, filled with pages of clues, a timeline, general encounters and a six-pack of pregenerated characters. Good entertainment for a single evening, which you could expand out into something more substantial. Well worth hunting around online for some authentic handouts (boarding passes, perhaps) and deck plans of the ship, just to add some extra authenticity.

The Millionaire's Special is based on an excellent premise, connecting a cursed mummy, Lovecraftian horror, and a tragedy that people still find interesting a century later. It's a short adventure, suitable for a single evening of play, and while it can be played as a pulpy "battle the bad guy" kind of adventure, it's really all about horror on multiple levels: that of the ancient evil brought on board, the implications of its existence, and the fact that the PCs might be in some way responsible for the doomed ship. What more could you want for $2.50.
